Went to Tavola last week, struggle to found the place and also thanks to the wrong direction from the staff it took almost 1 hour walking around the area before finally we reached the restaurant. :( Seated upstairs but unfortunately the outdoor area was closed that night, but still manage to get window seat so can still look outside for...

They gave us the wrong order, and then when confronted, said that they just assumed we'd want this week one instead even though they were out of the original! There was no apology at all. I wouldn't recommend that anyone eat here. Furthermore, when we made the reservation, they didn't state there was no brunch due to the holiday. So... More

I had heard of Tavola on and off but never found time to check it out. We (the family) finally went this weekend. At first glance the ala-carte menu looked way over priced. We opted for the buffet lunch menu which had what looked like nice options to pick a main course from a decent selection cooked to order. So... More

We walked down from our hotel looking for somewhere easy to get dinner; and stumbled across Tavola, an Italian restaurant. We were welcomed by extremely friendly staff, and not having a reservation was no problem. We sat overlooking the river watching the cruise boats (delightful in itself) and were treated to breads and nibbles to start off with. Our dinner... More

We found this restaurant by accident as we were wandering along the riverside on a Saturday afternoon. Nice interior and good english-speaking staff. Food quality was flawless. We will return.

we went to this restaurant because it was pouring outside and were seeking refuge. We were greeted by smiling faces and a warm welcome. The restaurant is sleek and stylish, and the river views are great. We loved the carpaccio, and the Daniella ham with honey truffle oil was amazing. Great Italian food for a reasonable price.

As a resident of Shanghai, this is one of my favorite restaurants to go to. It is a smaller sized restaurant, with modern furniture and a great standard. The food is excellent and the service is great. Their new chef "Alberto", is great and will even make food that is no longer on the menu. I go here with my... More

Slow service, small glasses of wine, servers more interested in their mobile phones than attending to customers, food not bad. I did mot understand why others raved about this very average or below average service experience.
